Toronto International Film Festival Lineup Announced
Piers Handling, CEO and Director of TIFF, and Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Toronto International Film
Festival, announced the first round of titles premiering in the Galas and Special Presentations programmes of the 39th Toronto International Film Festival®.
Of the 13 Galas and 46 Special Presentations announced, this initial lineup includes 37 world premieres from directors including Noah Baumbach, Susanne Bier, Peter Ho-Sun Chan, David Dobkin, Philippe Falardeau, Mia Hansen-Løve, Ning Hao, François Ozon, Christian Petzold, Lone Scherfig and Chris Rock.
"Toronto can anticipate another remarkable lineup of films," said Handling. "Cinema's collective and transformative experience lives at the heart of our Festival - a sentiment that inspires the global dialogue rippling throughout the selections revealed today."
"We can't wait to present the new films from some of cinema's brightest talents," said Bailey. "This year we'll welcome filmmakers from France, Germany, China, the UK, the US and more to red carpets in Toronto."
The 39th Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 4 to 14, 2014. The list of all the films being presented can be found here. The most noable film in the lineup for BroadwayWorld readers is the premiere of THE LAST FIVE YEARS. More details about that film are available here.
